Welcome to ehealthforum

If the lump is painless,has no swelling is not increasing in size then it can be left as such.It can be due to allergy,tight bra or a simple boil.Keep observing and self examining it for any changes in the size,shape,consistency,pain etc.
Take Vitamin E tablets once a day for a month and see if there are any changes.
If there is development of any other symptom consider visiting a Physician for evaluation.

Take Care!
